    I use to use Dans Feed to enrich BBS it's a little pricey but does an awesome job you can get it directly from seahorse source or an alternative you can feed the BBS nanochloropsis which will also enrich the BBS.

    There are many ways to enrich it just depends on your purpose. Gut loading with phyto, enriching actual shrimp with hufas, feeding egg yolk to increase protein levels

    I tried brewers yeast before but had little success with it. If you looking for Dans feed you could contact @Obi-Wan he use to bring in dans feed not sure if he still does...

    If you want to enrich mysis apparently you will haveto enrich brine shrimp and feed them to the mysis cos the chain seams to be phyto .brine.mysis (kinda creepy haha)
